    This is one of the largest art museums in the United States, with more than 227,000 pieces but a big attraction for its annual visitors is the 25 or more special exhibitions it puts on each year.

    Who cares about what's inside? The best part is Rocky's steps.

    Famous for its entry stairs (the ones Rocky sprinted up) as well as its massive collection. Work spans from medieval to modern, and its Art After 5 events bring a party feel to the hushed environs.

    DailyCandy · February 25, 2014
  • Beth F.

    Sure there's the world-class art downstairs by history's best painters, but don't miss exhibits on the top floor. There's part of a monastery, temple, and a Japanese tea house all INSIDE the museum.

    Beth Fisher · February 13, 2014
  • Lisa G.

    Beautiful Views!

    Lisa Gormley · February 2, 2014

    It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyway),a Rocky-esque run up the steps is obligatory. Read more
